Kirstie Alley lauds Trump for 'taking charge & leading' during coronavirus pandemic, ignites Twitter storm
Some users "chimed" in with tweets split between supporting what Alley said while others were confused, claiming blatant ignorance
Kirstie Alley, a longtime Donald Trump supporter, was subjected to massive trolling on Twitter after she supported the way he has taken "charge" of the COVID-19 health crisis. Alley had also previously endorsed POTUS during the presidential run in 2015, but later took it back after the president was on the hot seat for the controversial 'p***ygate' incident.
On Tuesday, her message to the president stated, "Dear Mr. President, @realDonaldTrumpI wanted to thank you for ur recent decorum, sincerity, & care towards us. You’re taking charge & leading in a manner needed & wanted for this country. I highly commend you for ur boundless energy & willingness to solve problems. Thank you." Twitter had split views on her tweet but Alley has always been outspoken about her political views.
Some users were pissed while others relayed countless compliments. John Melendez, from 'The Tonight Show', replied tweeting, "Are you out of your mind? What press conferences are you watching? I watch the ones with lies, misinformation, & jabs at Mitt Romney, & others." Alley snarkily retweeted Melendez's tweet with the caption "BlAh blAh blAh" while Melendez replied, "Kirstie, I'm a fan, but you're way off on this." She further explained, "I compliment people when they do well ... blah blah blah."
"You can tell a lot about people who belittle you for your views and beliefs, when u aren’t even TALKING TO THEM! My bestie and I call these people CHIMERS ..they ALWAYS chime in when u are speaking to someone else," Alley continued. She had also tweeted her support for POTUS when he was questioned on '60 Minutes' by Scott Pelley about his presidential run in 2015. Alley had tweeted saying, "Pelley acting like an antagonist asshat, I like Trump..fire at will."
Some users "chimed" in with tweets split between supporting what Alley said while others were confused, claiming blatant ignorance. "This is funny, but understandable coming from someone who believes humans are from an alien pod from like 7 billion years ago and worships at the alter of L Ron Hubbard," tweeted a user. "Do another line or two, Kirstie. It will help you see clearly how crazy your thinking is," tweeted another user.
Of course, some support also poured in, "Thank you for such a nice thoughtful message for President Trump. Such a refreshing change from the likes of other celebrities. You are super cool @kirstiealley," tweeted a user.
